Sofrito White Plains
Has anyone tried this restaurant? The website and menu look interesting-- a little out of the ordinary.
We had dinner there a few weeks ago and enjoyed it very much. We started with a (half priced) cocktail at the bar (happy hour is 4-7pm), and enjoyed a good mojito and delicious sangria (made with the addition of rum) served by a very friendly bartender. For dinner we shared a huge appetizer portion of tostones with assorted toppings. We then had the pernil, which was delicious but HUGE, more than enough for two people; and the ropa vieja. We will definitely be back.
I was there about a year ago. It was quite loud the night I was there due to live music. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it was unexpected. Food is solid, nothing to write home about. The Latin sushi is an interesting concept and they execute on it reasonably well. I wish I could remember what entrees we ordered to be more helpful, but my memory tells me it was a solid, not great, meal.
